Progressive in its approach, and the first serious treatment of the discipline since the 2008 financial crisis, Country Risk in the Age of Globalization is a must-have for practitioners and researchers alike. The authors pay due attention to the risks and tools facing managers today, from cybercrime to the demands of Big Data, all the while reminding the reader that country risk is as much of a problem in developed countries as it is in emerging and frontier markets. Going beyond the traditional approaches to country risk assessment, and developing a more precise look at risk than previous efforts by scholars, indispensable attention is paid to the importance of information sources and the various (and often overlooked) ‘contamination channels’ of country risk. A highly-recommended contribution to the literature of this increasingly important area of interest as international business moves to 2020 and beyond.”

This book provides a thorough and comprehensive analysis of country risk. It is quite unique in the way it convincingly integrates the various dimensions of the concept of country risk: economic, monetary and financial, social and political. The book also proposes ways to better anticipate and mitigate country risks, by mixing quantitative and qualitative considerations. It includes a great number of case studies. This book will be an outstanding reference for academics, advanced students and various professionals, more generally for everyone interested in better understanding the very uncertain world in which we are  living.
